Wild Mountain Rose | Bakersfield Photographer – Jess Cadena

“The hills were alive with wildflowers
And I was as wild, even wilder than they
For at least I could run, they just died in the sun
And I refused to just wither in place”
– Dolly Parton

Johnston Maternity Session | Bakersfield Photographer

Oh The Johnston’s ♥ They’re pretty amazing people and I love them even more every time I see them. They’re welcoming a baby boy to their family this month, and I’m pretty sure he’s going to be amazing. Especially if he’s anything like his big brother Jasper.

Fugate Wedding | Santa Barbara CA Fess Parker Hotel

Lina & Brady were married on August 24th in beautiful Santa Barbara at the Fess Parker Hotel. We had a wonderful time photographing two people in love on a gorgeous, warm day full of excitement & emotion.

David and I met Lina & Brady through the Bakersfield photography community about 3 years ago (whoa, doesn’t even feel so long ago!), and I specifically remember a night after David wrapped up a session with them. He came home, unpacked his gear and said something like “those two, they’ll be married. They’re so good together.” It’s likely they knew that at that point already, it’s pretty amazing to have a love so beautiful that the world around you feels it too.

Lina & Brady, we loved every moment of your wedding day! Looking back at how much love you were surrounded by, everyone was so full of love and happiness for the both of you. Your families, your friends. Photographers condition themselves to wait for these moments, when love is shared, memories are made. It was endless love the entire day. We are so happy for the two of you!

I’m so excited to share just a small bit of their wedding day with you ♥

Baby girl Lily | Newborn Photographer Bakersfield

Sweet Lily, you are a dream baby. You slept like a champion, curled perfectly into each pose and goodness those smiles! You’re also currently the record holder for least amount of soiled blankets during a newborn session, which was zero. Pretty unheard of, but my laundry pile thanks you for that ;)

Cotter Family | Maternity Photographer Bakersfield

Forgive me if I get a little sappy, I’ll try not to :) I first photographed this family last year when it was just the three of them. I loved them immediately, they’re easy to talk to, flow beautifully together, and really fun to photograph.

This year she announced that they were welcoming a sweet baby girl and we marked a date for her future due date. Unfortunately, this beautiful family moved far north and I won’t be with them when baby girl is born. So we exchange new baby goodness for a summer maternity session. I wish you so much joy in welcoming your baby girl in the next few weeks!
